Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Collects papers of Bonney originally published over a period of nearly 20 years, encompassed under three broad categories: the nature of the governing system, i.e., absolutism; the political crisis of the mid- 17th century, which is called the Fronde; and the development of royal finance. One notable aspect of the author's work--the provincial intendants of Richelieu and Mazarin, the subject of his first book, and those of Louis XIV, the subject of a projected book, are not included. Two of the 15 papers are in French; many others assume a knowledge of French for full comprehension. Distributed by Ashgate. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
